    I sync my Safari bookmarks between machines via MobileMe. Works pretty well.

    But I was wondering - is there a way I can make FireFox use my Safari bookmarks, so that they benefit from the sync as well?

    I use Bookdog. I keep my bookmarks synced across Safari, Firefox, and Camino. I think it works with other browsers too. They've recently introduced the successor to Bookdog, BookMacster, but I haven't played with it that much because Bookdog does what I want it to...and what you want it to do also.

    You also might want to google xmarks (formerly foxmarks). I haven't used it in a while, but for a short time I was syncing my Safari bookmarks with xmarks, and then xmarks (like MobileMe) would keep all my Firefox bookmarks in sync across my macs.

    I second that. I've been using Xmarks for quite long since it was still Foxmarks. It works great to sync my Safari, Chrome, Firefox bookmarks.

    Actually Bookdog does not do what I wanted, but their new "BookMacster" thingy might, so I'll keep an eye on that.

    I didn't know that xmarks worked with Safari now. Thanks! This will make things a lot simpler for me.
